Combine one part Chilean chef, with one part Italian mother and one part Spanish father. Add a dash of class and a pinch of sass for a mouth-watering fusion of global culinary nascency so delicious that words are insufficient to describe the experience.
This one-of-a-kind dining adventure is found at Rapa Nui Cucina, a well-hidden gem that opened for dinner about five months ago. It is tucked away at Kona Joe’s Coffee Plantation in South Kona. A tiny sign marking the turn into the coffee farm sits discreetly on the side of the highway.
